iWARREN, I like the cartoon blowing up with Mr. Simpson, Funny, keep it coming so folks here can have a smile. Also, @ hjlbx if folks in the forum know how to use emsisoft firewall they will learn pfsense very easily since there are tons of tutorials on youtube and other sites. This firewall is super secure and provides security for all of your network in the home. You can still use a wireless router with it in bridged mode and it blocks so many ip's and port scans until you see the logs you don't realize how many bad guys that are trying to get in your system through open ports, malware and trojans etc. Emsisoft Antimalware is probably the best antimalmare i've ever used and i have tested alot of other products like bitdefender etc. The netgate router comes with pfsense installed. Just checkout pfsense with your favorite search engine and you'll see that what i am saying is right. i am certainly not a computer programmer, engineer, i am just someone who likes security and good antivirus-antimalware protection. This is where the experts at Emsisoft play a tremendous part in our computer on the internet because these malicious attacks are engineered by smart people and it takes people who are experts to keep out the bad guys. Don't mean to lecture, there is always an alternative but i am not giving up on emsisoft antimalware because the firewall is pretty basic as compared to pfsense. You guys in this forum are smart people, do your research on what i have suggested because i don't want anyone to loose their security on the internet.
